A recent thread on Moonlight Mile prompted me to search out some JGB,and in doing so I downloaded 3/3/76,2/21/76 and 2/24/76 which you were kind enough to seed at bt.etree.Thanks for taking the time to do so.I also grabbed 2/26/80 and will going back for some of the later 76' shows and a few others that I noticed you seeded.
If I remember correctly you are a JGB guy,I was wondering if you had any info on the 5 versions of Moonlight Mile I can't seem to track down.I'm not sure as to their availability,but in my limited search I came up empty on 2/13,2/15,2/26,3/30 and 4/2.I seem to remember having a copy of 3/30 some years ago,but I surely could be wrong.Moonlight Mile is my JGB version of Clementine,a song I really wish was further developed.

wow, i think i seeded those '76 JGB shows around 4 years ago, i'm surprised that there was any seeder activity! and i agree, such a great song, i was quite into it as well for a span of time; i notice that the '76 JGB shows someone has been uploading the sources very recently at bt.etree, so you'll probably have more luck with his uploads since there will be more seeders involved

here's what i have for Moonlight Mile, and as you can see not every performed version of the song circulates

the JGB performed Moonlight Mile 11 times in '76:

2/15: (set 1 only) - Moonlight Mile is in the 2nd set, and the Jerry Site does show that a recording of the complete show circulates, as recorded by Michael Parrish, but for whatever reason, this source, which is described as 'for completists only', does not circulate as far as i can tell
2/26: alas, only the Early show circulates (Moonlight Mile is in the Late show)
3/5: no recordings in circulation!
4/2: Moonlight Mile is from the Late show, but no sources in circulation!

i love the 3/6 show & recording! in fact, you've prompted me to pull it out and give it a thorough listen, never a bad thing for that show!

if you ever stumble on one of my uploads at bt.etree and there's no seeder, you can always email me and i'll try to open up the torrent

No Moonlight Mile, however 4/3 is my favorite show from 1976. The Lonesome and a Long Way From Home is 22 minutes of pure Jerry.

I really appreciate the full response you posted Arb,and took advantage of the links and downloaded 3/13 and 3/30.I thought I did a thorough job of searching,but I'm just starting on bt.etree and learning the ropes. Also knowing about the 4 versions not in circulation saves me from looking for them,plus I found about the 3/5 version which I did not know existed.Thanks again for all the info and the offer to re-open a torrent if need be.Enjoy 3/6,I'm gonna crank up that hot Who Was John myself.I jotted down the date of that Long Lonesome Way Billydlions and will get to that when these others are done.

That Lonesome is on youtube:

It is pretty outstanding. The first time I listened to that I thought it might be the best piece of music I had ever heard!
